Mobile Associate Enablement
Associate Enablement does what it says. It is a collection of solutions, technologies and best practices that enable your store colleagues to easily convert a sale, surprise and delight customers, and without knowing it – access multiple data points (sources of single truth) on a single, mobile, web page.
Mobility is contributing hugely to an ever changing retail landscape. The sheer range of solutions, formats and devices offer a seemingly endless array of options to make the shopping journey slicker and to help you engage your customer. The VISION Commerce suite has a range of Associate Enablement solutions ranging from endless aisle (elastic walls), queue/line busting and payment. Click through to the following details on the different solution types VISION Commerce Suite can bring to your omni-channel strategy.
Our mobile solutions are based upon modern HTML5 based platform agnostic thin client technology that’s powered by VISION OnDemand services. This means our applications are able to run on Apple iOS, Android and Windows devices depending on your strategy, requirements and needs. You don’t have to be baked into one technology, but instead are free to choose what suits you. You don’t need servers in your stores as the VISION OnDemand backend can be cloud hosted centrally. Of course, mobile solutions are more than just the software so consideration needs to be given to device longevity and support, and the peripherals you want to use. Whatever you choose, the software will not restrict you. In addition to our thin client server centric solutions, our thick client mobile tablet solution is fully resilient and can run without network or Wi-Fi connectivity, making it ideal for events or pop-up stores.
